The documentary presents to the public some of Pascoli's most significant poetic compositions, showing the centrality of the human, animal and vegetable landscape in the construction of its poetic language. The poems, including Lavandare, Novembre, Il Gelsomino Notturno, are read and interpreted by a choir of characters, actors known as Ivano Marescotti and Paolo Poli, important academics such as Vittorio Roda and Andrea Battistini, writers and poets such as Loriano Macchiavelli and Vito Bonito, singers and musicians such as "Freak" Antoni and Angela Baraldi, but also simple people who with their interpretations give new life to the poems of Pascoli.
